Overseas trip to Canada

In the summer, my husband was sent on a business trip to Canada. Naturally, I decided to join him, and even take our two teenage children. After all, there is rarely the opportunity to ride so far!
All problems began with obtaining visas. This is something – getting visas to Canada. For some reason, we were suspected of intending to emigrate to this country and did so with enviable tenacity for two months! My husband was given a visa from the first call, and my children were refused on the grounds that I was going to emigrate there. I was at a loss. Why should I emigrate alone after so many years of marriage? But there was nothing to do, I had to play by their rules and collect a bunch of references. In the end, my boss got angry and gave me a certificate on the official letterhead of the enterprise that I was not going to emigrate. Help was on the official form and with a seal! I was somehow ashamed to take such a linden to the embassy, ​​but strangely enough, they willingly took it, and even gave me, finally, a visa. Two days before the trip! I want to add that all the hotels we have been paid for, and the tickets are non-refundable. So the hassle is still that! Continue reading

EXCURSIONS

The excursion program in Canada is extremely diverse. It offers excursions along the historical routes of the country’s native inhabitants and European colonists, visits to ancient cities and large administrative centers, where ultramodern buildings are adjacent to historical sights, and sightseeing of natural attractions. Excursions (in detail) can be on foot, bus, water, air, and in winter also ski or snowmobiling.

Be sure to visit the valley of the St. Lawrence River in the province of Quebec – a historically significant area where the first French colonists began to settle. These places are not like the rest of Canada. The French heritage is manifested here in everything. You can find out all about the history of this region in such large cities as Quebec and Montreal.

Montmorency Falls

Montmorency Falls is located 8.5 km northeast of the city of Quebec in the province of Quebec (Canada). It is formed by the Montmorency River (101 km long), which flows into the St. Lawrence River downstream of Quebec. It is near the mouth that a powerful stream of water flows down. Its height is 84 meters and its width is 46 meters. This natural formation is the highest in the province. At its base is a small lake with a depth of 17 meters.

History reference
The name was given to the waterfall in 1613 by the French navigator and cartographer Samuel de Champlain (1574-1635). He named the majestic waters in honor of the prominent French commander of the Duke Henry II de Montmorency. The name has taken root and has survived to this day. Continue reading
